Before Marshawn Lynch retired it was reported that the former Seattle Seahawks running back had not spent a dime of the $50 million he had earned in the NFL.
Lynch’s cousin, Mistah F.A.B., who has been making the rounds to promote his latest album “Son Of A Pimp 2”, confirmed the reports about Marshawn’s thriftiness in an interview with XXL.

Oooh, hell no! $60? Oh no, no. Let me get the $25 one right there, though, the one on the side of it. Yup, that one’s good!’ I’m like, ‘Cuz, you are a cheap ass hoe, bro.’ That’s just how he is. You learn to love him.”
